Wilson Springs

I was at a gun show in Pasadena, TX a couple of weeks ago looking for a Wilson Flat Wire Spring for one of my Kimber Pro IIís. I was talking to a disgruntled vendor towards Bill Wilson. He told me he used to shut competition against Wilson as he called him. During our conversation he said all Wilson Springs were made by Wolff does anyone know if that is true or not?

I don't know if it's true or not but it would make sense. Wolff specializes in making springs, it wouldn't make sense for company that makes guns to invest the kind of money it would take to get into the spring making business. I wouldn't be surprised if they also made all the springs for Kimber.

I wouldn't be surprised if they make most manufacturers springs.
